What a lovely gesture 😁 Nice one Premier Inn
Hahaha I misread this and thought it said free breakfast for vegitarians. I did think it was a bit weird. What is actually says makes much better sense. It may only be a small gesture but a lovely one all the same! Have some heat!
This is nothing but a publicity stunt by Premier Inn and a poor one at that.
Not all Veterans have medals. It should be sufficient to show a Veterans badge or other form of proof of military service

Fair play to Whitbread Group for this lovely gesture, particularly as it's available throughout the UK.

Breakfast!? Should be free rooms!
Nice one to premiere Inn

why do people when a company makes a offer that no one else is doing then go they should offer more? Instead of saying that why don't you say company X should be matching this not bitching they should be doing more.
Because they deserve more. That's why.
Very cool gesture, which they didn’t have to do , nice one

I guess that depends on your definition of Veteran.
Good spot OP, Heat from me,Veterans, Reserves and all Service personell we all salute you and your understanding families!!!
Mindfulness and Kindfulness are so important in life at this time of the year. Thank you so much Premier Inn for your Kind and compassionate thought for Veterans. If you know any Veterans "just say thanks"

There is only one definition “Veterans are defined as anyone who has served for at least one day in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) or Merchant Mariners who have seen duty on legally defined military operations.”

I'm not looking for the official stance, as I said it depends on your definition of Veteren.

Some people class it as someone who served during the World Wars.

Some class it as someone who has served in any conflict.

Some class a veteran as someone who has served in the Military, even if they have not been involved in any military action.

I have not seen what Premier Inn says, for their detention as to why they state show medals, or current MOD ID.
I'm a vet... i can dance under water and not get wet

So, for instance, an airman who worked servicing say Spitfires during WW2, or Ground crew for Vulcansin Ascension during the Falklands, or a nurse who worked in Hadley Court would not in your book be classed as a Veteran? I’ll stick with the official version thank you!

As I said it's not about your definition or mine, its about Premier Inn and what they are defining as a Veteran.

By the way, I didn't even mention what I class as a Veteran. I just gave you some of the definitions, which are used.

There is only one definition a Veteran. It’s not a title you can pick and choose how to define, it is a title that identifies the person as having spent time in the military in the service of their country.
Unlike the USA, we treat our Veterans abysmally, so whilst this is a nice gesture, they need to realise that their stated definition is inaccurate.
For your information, many Veterans actually wear a Veterans badge which is issued by MOD.
Again, the term Veteran does not mean someone who has just served in the Military.

Veterans are defined as anyone who has served for at least one day in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) or Merchant Mariners who have seen duty on legally defined military operations. (This means within a Conflict).
armedforcescovenant.gov.uk/wp-…pdf

kcl.ac.uk/kcm…pdf This shows you that even in the Forces, theirs a difference of opinion of how Ex and Serving personnel define Veteran.

Anyone who has severed in the Regulars or the Reserves (TA) can apply for a Veterans badge. Which is actually the watered down version of Veteran. Plus you can buy these from eBay, easily enough. When you say many Veterans wear a badge? You will find its actually a small percentage who wear them. Those that wear them, will normally wear them during certain occasions rather than full time.

I'm not trying to justify or support anyones opinions on what a Veteran is. A veteran does not automatically get a medal for being in a conflict area, as they are usually issued to personnel. Who's has seen a minimum number of days in that conflict. Not like our friends in the US who are issued ribbons for flying over or even within a few hundred miles of a country or conflict.

I have been in the British Army, so I'm not trying to diss anyone who has served. As I said from the start, there are many opinions on who can be called a Veteran. Even those who are ex-military have differences of opinion on this.
What proof do you need of being a veteran ?? Could I get away with it??

Kindest regards

Rediculious comment... they didn't have to offer anything and let's be honest most don't. They have offered something at their own expense and it's most welcome. From this example others may follow and give our service personnel past and present the respect they deserve

They are dragging their feet sorting the vet id out, it will rectify so many issues, government things
Great deal and we'll deserved.Thank you armed forces for everything you do.
I had to look at that twice, I thought it said vegetarians at 1st
Questionable conflicts are all yhay remain. The number of veterans from wars which were necessary for survival rather than politics dwindle by the day.
